Dani Alves Is 36 Years Old And He's Still Producing 10/10 Performances

Evergreen Daniel Alves scooped the man of the match award with another stellar performance as Brazil knocked Argentina out of Copa America.

Alves, 36, was a constant threat down the right flank, completing more passes than anyone else on his team during the 2-0 semi-final win on Tuesday night.

Gabriel Jesus and Roberto Firmino scored the Brazil goals as Lionel Messi's latest international failure grabbed the headlines.

But the incredible performance of 36-year-old full-back Alves deserves to be recognised above anything else.

He contributed massively towards attacking and defensive phases of play, completing five out of five take ons during the game.

And this moment, when he chipped Acuna before sending German Pezzella to the shops, was the icing on the cake.

Alves went on to pass the ball to Roberto Firmino, who provided an inch perfect ball for Gabriel Jesus to open the scoring.

In his 18th Copa America appearance, the 36-year-old stood out as the best player on the pitch among those in their prime.

Brazil will play either Chile or Peru in the Copa America final, but can Dani Alves lead his side to victory on Sunday night?

Let us know in the comments.
